KAKUHORI Premium Tea Line


Kakuhori is our newest line of select teas that are premium quality.



Throughout history teas has been bringing people together. And in the present day that tradition still exists. Since our founding over 70 years ago, Wakoen, a tea specialty store, continues to deliver products direct from our tea farms, to everyone’s hands. We hope that you will enjoy the deliciousness and enjoyment of tea made on the Osumi Peninsula (Shibushi City, Kagoshima), which is rich in nature and culture. The story of tea begins in the tea fields.

Our Founder



The “Kakuhori” brand, derives from the name “Kagoshima Horiguchi Tea”, which is our production department, with the theme of “vast tea fields on the ground like fluffy clouds in the sky”. We started it with the hope that it will be an opportunity for everyone to become more familiar with the single-origin loose-leaf tea made from our tea fields, which we could not meet with existing product lines so far. Focusing on the deep-steamed tea that we have consistently made, we will also challenge new tea varieties that take advantage of the characteristics of the individual cultivar.
